This week’s dilemma is as follows:

You and your father have always been close, ever since your mother died. Your father eventually remarries again when you’re just 12 years old. When you get to sixteen, you start getting into trouble and start acting out.
You have a really bad argument with your step-mother one day, and she tells your father that either she goes, or you go.
Your father chooses to let you go, and basically throws you out of the house to fend for yourself at the age of sixteen.

Years later, you meet up with your dad, and he apologises for the choice he made at the time, and begs for your forgiveness.

What do you do? Do you forgive him for picking his wife over his daughter, and abandoning you, or do you tell him to get lost?

What would you do?
